Another Accumulating Snow Likely, Then Bitter Cold Returns

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Confidence is increasing that we'll see another round of accumulating snow across the Heart of Illinois Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning.

Snow would start as early as mid-afternoon on Wednesday but expect snow chances to increase throughout the late afternoon and into the evening hours.

Snow will continue overnight before tapering off Thursday morning.

Here's what radar could look like as this storm moves through.

At this point, it looks like at least a few inches will be a good bet for everyone, with higher snow totals coming east of the Illinois River. The general rule of thumb for this storm will be more southeast, less northwest.

While the snow forecast may require a couple of tweaks between now and Wednesday, here is what we are forecasting for now.

Behind this storm, expect a quick but potent cold snap.

Temperatures will quickly drop throughout the day on Thursday, and we may only be in the teens for much of the afternoon. Low temperatures Thursday night into Friday morning look to be below zero, and highs Friday afternoon will only rebound into the teens.

It will be breezy as this storm moves through, but winds look to relax a little heading into Friday morning. However, potentially dangerous wind chills could still be possible.
